Whiteside scored 19 points (8-10 FG, 3-5 FT) while adding eight rebounds, an assist and a block in 26 minutes during Tuesday's 124-86 loss to the Bucks. After missing Saturday's game due to illness, Whiteside looked OK in this one, tying Justise Winslow for the team lead in scoring -- although they were the only two Heat players to even reach double digits in the rout. Whiteside is averaging a double-double a game for the fifth straight season, so better rebounding numbers lie ahead, but he'll face a tough task on the glass against Andre Drummond and the Pistons on Friday.
Whiteside (illness) is not on the injury report for Tuesday's game against the Bucks. Whiteside missed Saturday's game against the Grizzlies due to an illness, but he's apparently feeling well enough to rejoin the fold for Tuesday's matchup against Milwaukee. The big man is averaging 12.7 points, 12.5 rebounds and 2.5 blocks in 26.0 minutes this season and should immediately reclaim his role in the starting lineup.
Whiteside is listed as out for Saturday's game against the Grizzlies due to illness. Whiteside evidently picked up the sickness over the last day or so, as he looked logged 21 minutes in Thursday's matchup with Boston. This will be a big loss for the Heat, who will likely turn to Bam Adebayo and Kelly Olynyk to pick up the slack at center in Whiteside's absence.
Whiteside tallied 21 points (9-13 FG, 3-5 FT), 18 rebounds, a steal and two blocks across 30 minutes Friday against the Wizards. Whiteside was unstoppable on the boards yet again, recording his third straight game of 12-plus rebounds. He also notched his best scoring total since Dec. 2, when he put up 23 points against the Jazz. The Marshall product should continue to be a force down low, and his efficient shooting over his previous five contests should also excite fantasy owners (58.0 percent from the field).
Whiteside finished Wednesday's game against the Cavaliers with eight points (4-8 FG), 12 rebounds and a block across 23 minutes. Whiteside has been held to just eight points in both of his last two games, although he's made up for it by racking up 25 rebounds over that brief span. He's also notched at least one block in each of his five matchups. Whiteside is averaging 13.0 points across 30 games this season, so his point production is expected to pick up again sometime soon.
